I better get caught up so I can put some of these finds away - I don't tend to place anything until I've shared - so, here's what I found last week.
This little bell girl isn't in the best of shape, but she was red and is going to look cute on my shelf. She has ESD and Japan stamped inside - ESD was a distributor for some Lefton products in Canada.
Sometimes things just take your eye - this is not something I would normally buy - I liked the size and the shamrocks - it was made in Japan as well.
This sticker book was never used - it was published by Whitman Publishing, the stickers go on each room of the house. Books were half off, some of these I only paid 10 cents.
This book was never used either - it's a model puzzle - punch out the pieces and you can build a fire truck. This book was printed in Sweden, but published by Lito Books in Montreal.
I've found other scarves designed by the Canadian artist, Anthony Paine and had very good luck selling them, but this one I'm going to keep for myself - it's a beautiful scarf - the colors are so vibrant!
I don't often give the linen section much of a glance, I looked on the table - saw that signature and the ladybug - it was napkins - four of this pattern and two of the one below
All wrapped together with masking tape - price - $1. That was a good find!!
Records were $1 - this is right in keeping with the James Bond Exhibit we just saw..
I'm listening to this one right now - isn't it a great cover? I wouldn't mind to have some of those beads...
This one still has the cellophane on it, this one came from the grand old Canadian department store, Eaton's - it was 99 cents - that was a great store....
This is a different Elvis from the other one I have which is the one you usually see. This one came from Eaton's too.
This is a grand old cover.
Love this book!! I'm halfway through - it recalls all things Christmas from 1940 to 1970 - I've already read about toys, candy, books and I'm on the chapter about record albums right now. There's tons of pictures and a lot of text - it's well worth the price! This is just my kind of book!!
